PREVIEW: Dyslexia? ADD? Or Simply Poor Vision? By Dr. Diana Fatayerji

Most people are aware of the life-changing impact of failing vision in the elderly population. However, visual difficulties can develop early in life and can impact your child academically as well as socially. Visual problems in children are common, occurring in 8% of preschoolers and 25% of school-aged children. The use of glasses and contact lenses escalated from 18% in 1939 to 40% in 1980(1.) However, despite the introduction of vision screening in schools it is estimated that 20% of school-aged children have an unrecognized vision-based learning problem.(2.) School vision screening is only designed to check children’s distance vision, as measured by the 20/20 line on the eye chart. It fails to detect other visual problems. School screening does not check that both eyes are coordinated and working as a team, or that your child can track print across...

Shoes That Don’t Fit by Mariaemma Willis, M.S.

Would you force your child to wear shoes that don’t fit? Then why force an education that doesn’t fit! That is what’s happening to hundreds of thousands of school children every day. And those in private schools or homeschooling programs are not automatically better off. As long as children are forced to use a traditional textbook/workbook curriculum without any concern for their learning styles, they might as well be wearing shoes that are too tight, or so loose that they trip over them. An education that doesn’t fit is as painful, or perhaps even more painful, than ill-fitting shoes—after all, an ill-fitting education can scar a child for life. But wait… the traditional school system has been in place for a pretty long time, and most people come through it just fine, don’t they? Do they? Did you know...

PREVIEW: How to Become an Advocate for Your ADHD Child by Lara Honos-Webb

Once you have determined that you child does have ADHD, it is important that as a parent you become an advocate for your child.

In short, he needs you to become an advocate for him. Research has shown that a teacher’s perception of your child will dramatically impact his actual performance in school.
